Why Costa del Sol?

The Costa del Sol is one of the most popular areas of Spain; located in the south it boasts some of the finest beaches in the country. The Costa del Sol translates to ‘The Sunny Coast’ or ‘Coast of Sun’ which is mainly down to its year round good weather and long stretches of sandy beaches.

There are lots of resorts within the Costa del Sol but the main ones and most popular are Torremolinos, Benalmadena, Fuengirola, Mijas and Marbella. All these destinations offer a different type of holiday catering for different types of holidaymakers but they all have one thing in common, stunning white beaches!

Costa del Sol weather tends to be warm throughout the year and is still popular in the quieter months of March and April so it’s a pretty safe bet weather wise. Costa del Sol holidays are also renowned for their golf courses and those keen golfers of you will be pleased to hear there are over 72 to choose from.  Of course not all of you are interested in golf but you will find each resort will offer you plenty in both entertainment and relaxation.

For family getaways and relaxing breaks, Benalmadena is a great place to head. The beaches are perfect for lazy days in the sun and make sure you take time to visit the marina with its beautiful and high class restaurants and shops. Toremolinos which merges from Benalmadena has a slightly livelier nightlife to it with a good choice of bars and clubs. Fuengirola is also great for the beach lovers but even better for shopaholics as it has a huge choice of shops and its own mall where you will be spoilt for choice in shops and restaurants.

If it’s luxury you’re after then look no further than Marbella. Marbella and Puerto Banus are known as the playground for the rich and famous where you can enjoy a cocktail in the many stylish bars or dance the night away in the exclusive clubs. Make sure you head to the marina as well to marvel at the huge private yachts. On a completely different scale to Marbella, Mijas is a traditional village where you can enjoy peaceful beach holidays surrounded in a traditional and picturesque setting. Set in the mountains Mijas is ideal for those who want to embrace the Spanish culture and relax for a week in the sunshine.
